This request came up in today's Dragon Fogel stream of EP.

The request is to add a script command (imperative) that disables build sounds. This would be used in scripted rooms that heavily rely on build commands, with the intention of muting unneeded noises.

This would be super nice for Eye of the Storm in TSS. When I first played it, it must have been in a version of DROD where there were no build sounds or something, because all of the terrain reforming was silent. When I replayed in a later version, there was a bunch of constant noise everywhere that totally ruined the ambience.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Link to similar FR for RPG.

That RPG request has been around since the beginning, but I don't recall build sounds being in TSS. My guess is this changed in 5.1, maybe to be consistent with RPG(?).

By default, build commands should have no sound effect in TSS, so I'd consider this a bug.

Suggest we remove the sfx for now and add an imperative option to play a build sound.

RPG 1.3 will have the reverse: an imperative to disable the build sound, which is enabled by default.
